There’s a new name in the hat to host the 2026 Olympic Games.
Gary, Indiana made news on Saturday when the Olympic Planning Committee announced that it was ‘ready and able’ to put up the money to develop facilities to host the 2026 Olympics.
Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson said this is an “Aggressive pursuit..,” and added, “We have the means, we have the culture, and we have the funds to host the great Olympic Games.”
The mayor declined comment when asked about the cities’ current troubles, such as closing schools and overall unhappiness expressed by residents.
More to come.
